Bottle. Pretty good IPA. Some citrus tastes up front. Not too bitter and has a mild aftertaste. Not a lot of malt flavor.

Grapefruit abounds. Sampled next to the Trader IPA from the same brewery. I wish they had the hop profile on their website. Very balanced for a heavy hitter.

Bottle pours slightly hazy light colored amber. Huge tight head with crazy lacing. Smells like i just cut down a Christmas tree in the forest. Also smells like oranges. Fresh baked cookie smell. WOW tastes of sweet maltiness with massive in your face grapefruit. Lots of fresh hop flavor here but not overwhelming. Goes down smooth and not sticky. Not overly bitter either. Perfect amount of carbonation. This IPA is balanced nicely. The hops taste like they were picked yesterday. Fresh,bright,clean! There are so many flavors here i can’t describe them all. Very good IPA! I will definitely be drinking this again.

Pine and caramel malts on the nose, pours a clear light amber with a full white head. Nice clean hop flavor, with a good balance. Slightly slick mouthfeel, nice lingering hop finish. If you’re a fan of the more balanced IPA’s, then this would be one to pick up.
